Deadline to apply for City grants next week!

Aloha,     June 13, 2013

West Oahu’s spectacular lands, waters and coastlines give our communities a sense of place for residents to grow and thrive. This rich cultural heritage is perpetuated by the many community organizations and non profit groups that contribute significantly to our District’s quality of life.

To support these important groups that serve our residents so well, the City will be awarding non profit Grants in Aid, totaling about $5.5 million for this upcoming fiscal year, with at least $250,000 guaranteed to be awarded to non profits serving the communities in our Council District.

Grants in Aid will be used to support the sustainable improvement in the well-being and quality of life of local communities, especially low- to moderate-income areas in our District. Projects may include: the creation, development and empowerment of community based organizations, providing planning, organizational support, and technical assistance to organizations, supporting financial literacy programs and services, supporting micro-enterprise and business training, and supporting programs that promote cultural or environmental enhancement, protection, or awareness.

In addition, Grants in Aid will also support qualified public services and programs for vulnerable residents in our communities, including but not limited to: seniors, persons with disabilities, children, victims of domestic violence, homeless persons, and those suffering from the effects of substance abuse or mental health in our District.

Applications for Grants in Aid are now available at the Office of the Division of Purchasing, Department of Budget and Fiscal Services, Honolulu Hale, 530 South King Street, Room 115, or online at www.honolulu.gov/pur.

Applicants must attend an information session to apply. The last available session will be held at the Mission Memorial Building Hearings Room (550 South King Street – Red Brick Building) on Monday June 17th from 10:30 a.m. – noonSpace is limited so please RSVP by calling 768-5858.

All organizations must submit their sealed proposals to the Office of the Division of Purchasing by 4:00 p.m., Hawaii Standard Time (HST), Friday, June 21, 2013. The Division of Purchasing is located at Honolulu Hale, 530 South King Street, Room 115, Honolulu, Hawaii. 

By supporting our non profit organizations and groups that serve our communities, we are continuing our work in improving the quality of life for our District’s residents.

Should you like to know more about the Grants in Aid program please feel free to contact my office by calling 768-5089.

Mahalo,
